It's finally here. Tomorrow we fly out to Florida for the first time in five years. The house feels weird since we dropped off the rabbit at my Grandparents house for three weeks yesterday. Don't you just love the day before you go away? Excitement levels through the roof, last minute packing, the frantic searching around the house for the things that haven't seen the light of day in years yet are desperately needed. One of my favourite parts has to be having to eat all the fresh food in the house. Well, we wouldn't want it to go to waste would we?
My suitcase is nearly packed and my electrical stuff is all getting charged up. I've just discovered that I can't locate one of my camera lenses so I need to investigate that once I've finished this post. My dad's drivers license has gone missing and my mum can't locate her iPod that we used just yesterday. Both me and my sister are out the house til 9pm tonight at various places so I anticipate that it will be a very crazy couple of hours after that sorting out all the stuff we can't do until the last minute (showers, hair, nails, hand luggage etc).
One sleep to go. Oh, who am I kidding? Sleeping tonight will be harder than holding back the tears during IllumiNations at Epcot.

|My fantastic shoes which I bought whilst I was on crutches as in incentive to get walking again soon!|
After the ceremony, there were the obligatory photos with every combination of family members that was possible, as well as all the friends that I could pick out of the crowd of people all wearing the same hats! We attended the drinks reception at the Geography Building then headed off to a local restaurant for a meal. It was our first time visiting the restaurant but all 7 of us were pleased with our meal :)

Over this past weekend, we travelled over to Wales to celebrate my Uncle's upcoming retirement. As soon as my mum finished work on Friday, we hit the road and thankfully the rush hour traffic wasn't too bad and we were in Wales with an hour to spare to get ready for the party. It was nice to have so many of the family together for such a happy celebration (sadly my sister couldn't make it as she was in Bournemouth at a cheerleading competition). It was lovely to see how many people of different ages came to the party; I guess you can say he's a well-respected man!
Me and Sophie.
Me and mum.
With the newly retired man. He couldn't make a normal face for a photo all night.
